Since we aren't on every social media site, let us come to you. Enter your email below and we'll send you our monthly handwritten newsletter. It will be written during the hours of moonrise, and include featured posts, wild tangents, and rowdy stick figures. 

Keep the beautiful pen busy.

Brooklyn, NY

Handwritten is a place and space for pen and paper. We showcase things in handwriting, but also on handwriting. And so, you'll see dated letters and distant postcards alongside recent studies and typed stories. 

#TeensTakeCharge • You

If you're a student and can't join us on April 28th — either because you are busy that evening or live across the country — we still hope you will speak up.

All you have to do is pull out a sheet of paper, address it "To Whom It Should Concern," and tell us about the reality of your everyday experience in school. What is one thing that people — adults, teachers, or policymakers — don't seem to realize, or understand, about what you're going through? What is one thing you wish people would understand? But don't stop there. Tell us about what you wish to see happen in your school. If there was one change you could make, what would it be? Tell us what you see, and what you wish you could see.


Get writing.

Address your letter "To Whom It Should Concern," describe an experience or something you wish people would see, and then take a photo and post it to your social media accounts (tagging @teenstakecharge on IG or FB), or email it to teenstakechargenyc@gmail.com and they'll either post it on their website or read it aloud at the next event.
